Description:
The queen palm, once more commonly known as Cosos plumosa, is
native to subtropical woodlands of Brazil, Argentina and Bolivia. It grows to
form a neat, single trunk tree with long arching green leaves. In cultivation
is hardy to 17ºF making it a popular choice for milder climates of Southern
California and Florida where it is widely grown. Grow it in full sun in normal
well draining soil. It is susceptible to a deficiency of manganese which
causes the leaves to appear frizzy or torn. A dressing of manganese
sulphate at an appropriate dose corrects this problem. It can survive some
drought conditions but is best watered regularly.
